Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more.

Namaskara.

Let us learn who the ashta Dikpalakaas (Gods/Devatas in charge of the eight directions) are:

  • East – Indra

  • South East – Agni

  • South – Yama

  • South West – Niruti

  • West – Varuna

  • North West – Vayu

  • North – Kubera and Soma

  • North East – Ishanya

During sandhyavandane we pay our obeisance to all these eight devatas to grant us success in whatever direction we move.

Feel free to offer your suggestion or correct any mistake in the comments section.

Note:

For newcomers, Adhyatma Chintane is a weekly column by my school friend R, where he discusses all things spiritual, in readily understandable tidbits. The purpose is to spread awareness about our culture and tradition, which is increasingly becoming a distant memory. A new issue will be delivered to your inbox/feed reader every Monday morning.
